INDOT Study: potential I-69 toll could raise $11-billion

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The state of Indiana stands to bring in billions of dollars in a proposed statewide tolling program.

A feasibility study released yesterday by the Indiana Department of Transportation says between 2021 and 2050, the state could bring in between $39-billion and $53-billion in toll revenue on potential tolls on Interstates 64, 65, 69, 70, 74 and 94.

Tolling revenue on I-69 itself would cost someone driving from Fort Wayne to Indianapolis $4.20 one-way, and would bring the state between $8.4-billion and $11-billion from 2021 to 2050.

Proposed toll rates were 4 cents per mile for a passenger vehicle, and 19 cents per mile for “heavy trucks” like semis.

The study is part of a transportation bill approved by the GOP-controlled state legislature and signed by Governor Eric Holcomb, which also included an increase in gasoline sales taxes.

Didn’t the last election effectively communicate Americans demand less taxes? Why is our State government looking for ways to tax us more? I thought Governor Holcomb was a Republican. It’s hard enough to fight against what the liberal main-stream media vomits out. Are you kidding me?

Gov. Holcomb: Stop the invasion of Illinois politics and fiscal “policy” and “responsibility”! This goes through, and I, for one lifelong Republican, will work to vote you out, along with all who supported it. I live 10 miles from IL, and have thanked God many times that I don’t live 11 miles further west. But this makes it sound like Chicago/Springfield has poisoned the drinking fountain in Indy.
